The Presidency has reacted to an allegation by the former Governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekarau, that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is insensitive to the plight of Nigerians.
Dismissing the allegation, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Malam Garba Shehu, cautioned Shekarau to stop insulting the intelligence of Nigerians with his false and misleading allegations.
“The audacity of Shekarau to preach about sensitivity is incredibly amazing, considering the large-scale stealing of public funds by the unseated PDP government at the expense of the welfare of the people.
“The greatest insensitivity to the welfare of the people is epic corruption for which the PDP had a notorious and unrivalled record in our recent democratic history of bad governance,’’ Shehu said, adding that “the greed of PDP leaders respects no boundaries of decency and rationality, so much that they could illegally steal any funds within their grip or reach, including monies meant for the security of Nigerians and the welfare of soldiers fighting terrorism in the Northeast.’’
He said that the welfare of the citizens was at the heart of the President and for this reason, “the administration is seeking permanent solutions, not temporary ones to the county’s economic woes by first securing it, developing infrastructure and diversifying its economy.’’
Shehu reassured that the several measures put in place by the Buhari administration would bear fruition in a matter of time.
